The autonomous education robot based on micro:bit

The Joy-Car is an autonomous education robot based on Micro:Bit and offers a modular robotics learning kit. Sensors such as line tracking, ultrasonic, infrared and wheel speed sensors enable functions such as autonomous driving and even control via BT using a second, separate Micro:Bit.

The additional equipment simulates turn signals, lights, reverse lights and horn, rounding out the experience of an autonomous robot car. By using addressable LEDs, additional individual lighting scenarios can be realized.

Education for all!

The Joy Car is the ideal vehicle for learning about electronics and programming and was specially designed for use in schools. In cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute, the Joy Car was integrated into the Open Roberta platform. This makes it immediately usable for everyone, even without programming knowledge, and guarantees a lot of fun without frustration with immediately visible results.

Particularly advantageous for use in the classroom, since the effort for the teaching staff is also kept to a minimum. Furthermore, a comprehensive manual is available on the JoyCar homepage. Here the programming in MakeCode and MicroPhyton is explained. Information, tips and a forum for questions, problems and ideas are also offered there.
